Went in to order a shirt, then walked into adjoining restaurant for some appetizers mid day. Food was outstanding! Tried to get a reservation the following evening, however they were fully booked. This place is not a tourist trap. We will definitely be back.

Took my son here for lunch and I just love their coconut shrimp. Had a larger platter with French fries. My son had the burger which was quite big and very tasty he said. Atmosphere is casual and happy. Service was excellent as always.

I often come here for business lunches. The food is great and service is excellent. There are no bad food moments. I love their seafood menu and my fav is the macadamia crusted snapper (move over Roy’s). Cooked perfectly right all the time. Great ambiance...More
